Justin Scott a.k.a. Big K.R.I.T. is a southern rapper with a net worth of $1.25 million. K.R.I.T. spent several years releasing underground mixtapes before he gained mainstream success with the 2010 mixtape “K.R.I.T. Wuz Here.”
Before hitting it big, K.R.I.T. (which stands for King Remembered In Time) had already started to build his career’s momentum with appearances on songs by rappers Curren$y and Wiz Khalifa.
“K.R.I.T. Wuz Here”
“K.R.I.T. Wuz Here” was K.R.I.T.’s sixth mixtape, and ended up becoming his ticket to stardom. The mixtape featured guest appearances from Curren$y, Wiz Khalifa, Devin the Dude, Big Sant and Smoke DZA. The mixtape received rave critical reviews, and caught the attention of Def Jam Vice President Sha Money XL. Only weeks after “K.R.I.T. Wuz Here” had gone online, K.R.I.T. received an offer to sign with Def Jam, which he quickly accepted.
“Return of 4Eva”
K.R.I.T. followed up on the success of “K.R.I.T. Wuz Here” with the 2011 release of “Return of 4Eva,” an entirely self-produced mixtape. The mixtape featured guests David Banner, Joi, Big Sant, Chamillionaire, Raheem Devaughn, Ludacris, and Bun B. “Return of 4Eva” was another critical success, receiving praise from media outlets like HipHopDX, Slant Magazine, and Pitchfork.
Studio Debut: “Live from the Underground”
K.R.I.T. finished off 2011 by touring with Curren$y and Method Man on the Smoker’s Club Tour. Then, in June 2012, he dropped his much-anticipated studio debut, “Live from the Underground.” The album was another self-produced effort, and this time featured collaborators like Ludacris, 2 Chainz, 8Ball & MJG, and blues guitar legend B.B. King. The album debuted at number five on the US Billboard 200, selling 41,000 copies in its first week on the market.
Latest Venture: Second Studio Album & Collaboration with Yelawolf
K.R.I.T. broke his habit of self-producing albums and mixtapes in 2013 (albeit only slightly) when he enlisted producer 9th Wonder to help him with a few tracks on his tenth mixtape, “King Remembered In Time.” The mixtape featured appearances by Bun B, Future, Trinidad James, Wiz Khalifa, Smoke DZA, and Big Sant.
In June 2013, K.R.I.T. announced that he was working on a new studio album, although he has yet to disclose the album’s title. K.R.I.T. has also named Mike WiLL Made It as the producer of the upcoming album.
K.R.I.T. had also previously announced that he was working on a collaborative album with fellow southern rapper Yelawolf called “Country Cousins.” The album was initially set to be released by late 2012 or early 2013, but has yet to see the light of day.
